Player Affinity writes: "Games Workshop is known for many things, one of which is the rich and dark science fiction universe of Warhammer 40,000. Set in a far flung future, the various human and Alien empires clash in epic battles. Usually at the forefront of these battles are the Adeptus Astrates, The Emperor's Space Marines. The Space Marines of Warhammer 40K have inspired numerous things from the Terrans of Blizzard's hit Starcraft games to the faceless Master Chief of the Halo games. Gamers have longed to have a faithful interpretation of the sheer awesome might that the Space Marines have associated with them in Warhammer lore, but graphics limitations have long delayed that. Although we got to see some of that awesome might displayed in the Dawn of War games, we all wanted to experience the sheer carnage that the Space Marines leave in their wake, up close."
